Chattanooga State Community College Reviews

I have attended Chattanooga State Community College for over a year. Every interaction I have had with staff members about registration, fees, and classes has gotten me nowhere. They like to send students in circles in order to get a simple issue resolved. When I think of a community college, I have the anticipation that the classes will be somewhat easier than university-level classes. However, when it comes to science courses such as anatomy, chemistry, and biology, it is the exact opposite. I have spoken with numerous students who have taken these courses and they have said that they either ended up with a "C" average in the class or had to retake it. I am not saying that challenging students is a bad thing, but if many of them are having to retake the course or ending the semester with a poor grade, should that not be a wakeup call to the school? Is the school purposely making classes difficult so that students have to pay even more money to retake the class?

I'm a 16 year old student part of their Collegiate High program. I know everyone talks down to community colleges, but I've never been somewhere that makes me happier! Everyone I've met is super friendly and accepting. I've not had a bad experience yet, and I've been there for nearly 6 months!
It was the best community college I've ever enrolled. I completed there more than a year toward my Bachelor degree of Electrical Engineering. The atmosphere and location of the college is calmly and gentle. All instructors of my classes were very well experience in their specific field of study. Overall, I'd love it!
